Summer Tree Fingerpainting Bubble Wrap Craft

This is a wonderful Summer tree fingerpainting craft. It's one of a set of 4, one for each season. It uses one of my favorite techniques, using bubble wrap to paint the leaves.


  • white card stock or thick paper
  • paints
  • paint brushes
  • brown construction paper
  • pencil
  • scissors
  • glue
  • bubble wrap

  • Directions:

    1. Beforehand, trace an cut out a simple tree shape. If you plan to make 4 of these crafts, make 4 trees with the same template. Or trace a hand print for the tree.
    2. Use brushes or fingers to paint on a blue sky and green grass. Use a little white to make the colors brighter and give the illusion of clouds. Allow to dry.
    3. Glue the tree into your summer scene.
    4. Cut a piece of bubble wrap, about the same size as the top of the tree.
    5. Paint the bubble wrap green.
    6. Press onto the tree to make the leaves.
    7. Use finger and thumb prints to make butterflies and flowers.
    8. After dry, use a thin brush or toothpick to add the flower stems and the butterfly antennae.
